Two time TT winner Cameron Donald has rejoined Wilson Craig Racing for the 2016 road racing season.

His move back to the team he competed for between 2011 and 2013 marks the end of his disappointing two-year campaign with Norton.

The hard charging Donald, who has ten TT podiums to his name, was delighted with the move. He said: “I’ve signed with Wilson again to race at the front of the Superbike field. He’s always prepared great bikes for me and I’m really comfortable with the team and see Wilson as a friend.

“I know that I can still win races on the Isle of Man and riding for Wilson Craig Racing will give me every chance to have a go for the top spot in the big bike class as well as the other races.”

Wilson Craig Racing team owner, Wilson Craig, was equally confident the move would see his team fighting for honours. He said: “It’s no secret that I’ve always wanted to win a Superbike Race at the Isle of Man TT and with Cameron Donald we’ve undoubtedly got a chance to win one.

“We’ve got a real affinity with Cameron and he’s always been consistently challenging in every class when he’s raced for us.”

The move will see Donald back on Honda machinery in the Superbike, Superstock, Supersport and Senior races.

Donald has languished in the midfield during his time at Norton, but there’s no mistaking he has the pace to run at the front, having won the 2008 Superbike and Superstock TT races, as well as being the first man to break the 131mph lap time, albeit unofficially, during practice week at the TT in 2009, he became the first rider to lap in excess of 131 mph.
